SOS Humanity: Earth's Last Distress Signal

It’s easy to get cynical about the end of the world - we all saw it coming - but one optimist believes you shouldn’t give up so easily on people. Join Chip Reynolds every other Monday in this musical sketch comedy wrapped inside a sci-fi fiction as he tries to persuade extraterrestrial listeners to save his species through randomly selected “Earth Archives” – unopened and unheard files of humanity at its “best.” Each episode is an endearing reminder that even at our worst, there’s always hope.
